Monday Roundup

Favorites and duds from today's commenting.

Favorites, in no particular order:

I enjoyed this wordplay gag from StuartScottsEye in the Free Food post. The format of this joke - cleverly worded summary of the post's content, followed by a redirected punchline - has become so familiar that it almost functions as a knock knock joke. You could almost stop after the first part and have fun trying to get ahead of the punchline, to guess your way to the finish. Because most of the work that goes into this thing is in trying to reword and repurpose the content for the setup, and that's really where the humor exists in the joke. And because there are no other options, this is the Comment of the Day.

Total Fucking Duds

Yeah, like I'm going to spend time chasing down shitty jokes on a day when there was a single Favorite.

Look for a Tuesday Roundup sometime tonight.


  1. This is simultaneously the most and least excited that I have ever been. Thanks.

  2. Why do you even torture yourself by doing duds at this point? Who is benefiting from this?

  3. Doing Duds at this point is like compulsively checking the salinity in a flooded-to-capacity water treatment facility-- you're going to want to wait until the waters recede a little, sir.
